United Torah Judaism head Moshe Gafni tells Army Radio he supports opening synagogues for vaccinated people only.
“A person who is unvaccinated won’t go into the synagogue, will stand outside,” he suggests. He notes that under current conditions synagogues “are closed anyway” so there is nothing to lose by such a move.
Gafni bristles at the suggestion that ultra-Orthodox are ignoring health rules without paying penalties.
“I have many Haredi friends who haven’t opened their business in 200 days. People are hungry for bread. There’s no difference between Haredim and others.”
